Our Emerald Green Tree Boa is acting Very Strange
First off she is about 5-6 foot long and we got her a month ago from our local reptile store. She seemed to be doing fine. She has turned down 3 rats in the last 2 weeks, but we were not super worried until...

A friend who is good with snankes was holding her and she put her jaw up against his arm and was likeing rubbing to open her mouth or reall side lip. Then...

she has started to become seemingly weak, hanging more loosely on her branches,. we got so worried we bought a new cage with a screen top and new huge water dish and nice branches,. we just brought her home and she is doing weird stuff with her mouth ., it's like half open on one side and she is kinda rubbing it,. then the weirdest thing we have never seen snake do,. but she has been face half way in the water dish for like 20 minutes now. her mouth still has one side kinda opened. This is our child now, she means the world to us,. has anyone on here seen this kinda behavior with a snake or have any ideas what's going on with her??

She needs to see a vet pronto... could be mouth rot or maybe an infection from a missing tooth etc. A vet visit will save her life!!

Yeah, definitely take her to a vet! Sounds like mouth rot to me
